Car Accident Lawyers Explain Taxi Rider Rights in North Carolina, Winston-Salem, North Carolina

Taxi drivers are notorious for driving dangerously, and car accident lawyers know firsthand that the consequences of doing so are often devastating. If you or someone you love was involved in an accident with a taxi, Nagle & Associates, PA, in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, will help. From medical bills and lost wages to vehicle repairs, the costs of a collision add up fast, but you shouldn’t have to cover them if it wasn’t your fault.

Though North Carolina doesn’t have its own Taxi Rider Bill of Rights like some other states, it does have a set of regulations that all taxi drivers must follow. For example, all taxi companies and drivers in the state must have the appropriate licensures before operating commercial vehicles for hire. In order to ensure the safety of its residents, the state of North Carolina also has the right to deny licensure for a variety of reasons.

Individuals can be denied a taxi driver’s license if they have been convicted of a felony; if they have been arrested or charged with an alcohol or drug offense; if they have been arrested for violating North Carolina’s prostitution laws; if they are known for having problems with substance abuse; if they have multiple traffic violations on record; or if they are not United States citizens.

Car Accident Lawyer

Even if the taxi driver who was involved in your collision is fully licensed, you may still have legal recourse if the accident was not your fault, and that’s where an auto accident lawyer comes in. According to a 2013 study, hefty medical bills are the most common cause of bankruptcy in America, and even those with health insurance aren’t necessarily protected.

The car accident lawyers at Nagle & Associates, PA, in Winston-Salem believe no one should struggle to pay medical bills they incurred as a result of someone else’s reckless or negligent behavior.
